Under the auspices of the Tsunami fee of the overseas Union of Geodesy and Geophysics and the overseas Coordination crew of the overseas Oceanographic fee, the IUGGIIOC foreign Tsunami Symposium, TSUNAMI '93 (Sixteenth foreign Tsunami Symposium) used to be held in Wakayama, Olle of the main historic components within the prevention of tsunami failures in Japan, from 23 to 27 August, 1993 by way of the Organizing Committee of the Japan Society of Ovil Engineers, in commemoration of the foreign Decade for common catastrophe relief. multiple hundred and fifty scientists, engineers and experts focusing on tsunami examine and mitigation of the failures met from 13 nations to switch present details on technica1 advances and to debate growth within the technological know-how. Over hundred and ten abstracts have been submitted, so much of which have been first-class. It was once particularly agreed during this symposium that during the aftemoon of the 3rd day a ordinary consultation for operational tsunami caution platforms and plans for development is hdd, yet 3 days for presentation and ebook regulations basically let the presentation of lower than seventy eight papers.

The recent case is the Nicaraguan earthquake of September 2, 1992 (Fig. 10). About 10 percent of all the tsunamigenic earthquakes in Japan are the tsunami earthquakes (Abe, 1988, 1989b). The present method cannot be applied to these unusual events, because the magnitude of a tsunami earthquake is not a reliable measure of the tsunami potential. For more practical 34 K. ABE purposes, the rapid judgment of a tsunami earthquake and the rapid evaluation of the tsunami potential of the earthquake deserve an important subjects in future studies for increasing the reliability of the existing warning system.
